UCLA is now tied for the lead in the Pac-12 South, even after stumbling all over the place to open the season. The low-point was the blowout loss to Arizona, in which the Bruins were able to muster absolutely nothing and were involved in a brawl before the half. But now, just a few weeks later, UCLA has come all the way back, downing Arizona State to take the lead in the South.
Derrick Coleman scored from a yard out with just under a minute to go, giving UCLA a 29-28 lead over the Sun Devils at the Rose Bowl. The touchdown plunge capped a five-minute drive that saw UCLA go 79 yards for the go-ahead score.
Arizona State still had a chance, down by one with 49 seconds to go. After the Sun Devils drove to within field goal range, Alex Garoutte lined up for a 46-yard field goal to win. But his attempt was wide right and never had much of a chance, setting off a celebration at the Rose Bowl.
Out of nowhere, here comes the Bruins after a 29-28 win over No. 19 Arizona State.
